Saudi Arabia accused of 'disregard' for human life by United Nations following air strike which killed 12 in Yemen

‘A senior United Nations official in Yemen has condemned the Saudi-led air strike which killed at least 12 civilians, including children, saying it showed a complete “disregard” for human life.

Three women and six children from the same family were killed as they slept in the dawn air strike by the Saudi-led coalition opposing the Houthi rebels in the Yemeni civil war, according to Reuters.

The youngest of the children killed was just two years old, according to medical officials.

The civilians were killed and ten others wounded in the attack on their home in the Saada province, according to the UK’s humanitarian coordinator in Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick, and other aid groups.

Mr McGoldrick expressed “deep concern” about the Saudi-led action in an official statement in which he accused the coalition of violating international law.’

UK lawyers seek to suspend Saudi Arabia from UN rights body

'Two British human rights lawyers have announced their plan to pursue suspension of Saudi Arabia from the UN Human Rights Council after 61 people were arbitrarily detained or disappeared in a recent round of Riyadh’s crackdown on public dissent.

In a Tuesday statement, lawyers Ken Macdonald and Rodney Dixon announced that they will submit their report to the Council in Geneva on Wednesday, stressing that the detentions carried out in September 2017 were "in breach of both Saudi and international law."

The report has accused the Saudi officials of "targeting human rights activists, political dissidents and others merely exercising their right to free speech."

The arrests are "part of an ongoing, established and long-running pattern of abuse" by the Riyadh regime, the statement said.

The report said Saudi authorities started the wave of arrests on September 10 by detaining prominent clerics including Salman al-Awdah and Awad al-Qarni, noting, "There are credible reports of mistreatment and torture during their detention."

The UN General Assembly "must urgently consider" suspending Saudi Arabia's membership of the Human Rights Council under a resolution that allows this in case of members that commit "gross and systematic violations of human rights," the lawyers said.'
